After breakfast, we all went in separate directions getting things done before the party began. Dad and I were on team "cake and balloons" and did a great job might I add.
At noon, we were ready to go and everyone started arriving. We ate great food, drank, played with all the kids and loved on the birthday boy.
Finally, the moment I had been waiting for...CAKE TIME! Nate had his own "The Big One" cake. After singing Happy Birthday and blowing out his candles, Nate put one finger in the cake. He did NOT like the cake at all. He tried a few more fingers and wiped his face. At this point, he did not like the feel of the cake or that it was all over his face. After a few minutes and a few more fingers, he really got into the cake. Em gave him a plastic fork and he loved eating the cake with the fork. Secretly, I wanted him to dive head first into the cake but that didn't happen.
It was so fun to watch him eat the cake and get it all over himself!
See all the fun pictures below....
Nate got lots of great birthday presents but the item he liked the most....his plastic solo cup! If only I would have known, I could have saved money and just bought a bag of cups. Maybe this is a precursor for his love of beer pong?!?!
I have had a great time seeing how much Nate has changed in just a few months. He babbles up a storm, is almost walking, has 6 new teeth, and still loves to giggle and smile all the time! I'm sure when I see him again in a few months, he will be walking and speaking several different languages :)
Happy 1st Birthday Nathan Eric Givens!!
